reminder reminder reminder

Written by: Colleen Chua

remind me, remind me why i'm doing all these
remind me, remind me why things are the way they are

the first taste of amnesia came last year
when the film in my head
jammed
refused
failed
to respond to my summons of recollection

the second came this year
when evidence of photographs
reminded me of your presence

this time it stung even more
cos i had believed it wouldn't happen
again
it did

remind me please
cos i forget
yes i forgot
remind me why.
